 The Lobster Fishing season in area 26 B North from Margaree to Pleasant Bay will open on Saturday morning at 6 a.m.
The decision to proceed with the Saturday opening was made this morning in a conference call  involving officials from the Federal Fisheries Department and local fishermen.  The start of the season has been delayed because of high winds.  It was scheduled to open last Saturday, May 6th.
There are approximately 108 licensed fishermen in 26 B North.
